After years of patiently awaiting the return of Agents Mulder and Scully, fans were finally gifted with a new six-episode season of The X-Files earlier this year. Unfortunately, just as soon as it had begun, it felt like it was already over, with its season finale leaving fans with much to talk about - good and bad - while keeping the door wide open for more thanks to a massive cliffhanger. Throughout its original nine-season run, The X-Files consistently balanced the overarching mythology-focused episodes with monster of the week stories, with the series' lack of fear about bouncing from serious, faith-based episodes to outright horror yarns to lighthearted comedic ventures and everything in between going a long way in shaping an identity for itself that helped endear itself to fans. The revival, fortunately, stuck true to that, sandwiching the types of MOTW stories that fans have always loved between "bigger picture" mytharc episodes. True to X-Files form, some of these episodes quickly reached acclaim from critics and fans alike, while others didn't quite hit the mark years of anticipation had set so high. Though the long wait looms ahead of us to find out when we can expect more, for now let's take a spoiler-filled look back at the six episodes we got to stack up which ones disappointed and which ones lived up to the hype.
